Here’s the thing: If you’re going to call Paper Hearts book two in the series, I shouldn’t have to read some random novella before I can get started if I’ve already read book one. That would make Paper Hearts book three in the series. If a book is #1.5, it should include some extra information that’s fun for your readers, but it shouldn’t be required reading to understand what happens in the next book. I think I might be in a bit of a mood right now because this is really getting to me.
Anyway, on to the review.
I didn’t love it. I didn’t even really remotely like it. I don’t agree with Jensen’s choices and I feel like I’m not going to enjoy Paper Hearts because of it. This novella includes so many of my romance novel pet peeves that I honestly wish I could stop right here, but, alas, the reading challenge. I have made awful choices this month.
I think I should probably just put it all out there because I know this would be a hard nope from me had I known what it was about going in.
